CARTAGENA, Colombia—Hilton Cartagena announced the completion of a multimillion dollar renovation campaign that introduces a total transformation of 288 main tower guestrooms, as well as upgrades to its pool complex.
The renovation of the 341 rooms was led by two local designers, Juan Manual Garcia and German Lopez Barrera. The first step in the renovation was enlarging the indoor area by incorporating the balcony and terrace space in the rooms’ interior. The designers then focused on creating a space that reflected the tones and elements of the surrounding landscape including sand-colored porcelain flooring, natural oak furnishings, and a color scheme that blends the blues and violets of the sea and sky. All guestrooms are also outfitted with the Hilton Serenity Collection of amenities featuring high-definition flat screen television, alarm clock with MP3 player connection, and wireless Internet access.
To complement the room renovations, Hilton Cartagena also revitalized the pool complex with a number of upgrades including a brand new non-slip marble floor and landscaping.
The renovation is part of a larger scope of major projects by individual hotels above standard annual capital expenditures across the global portfolio of Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide. Beginning in 2011, the projects currently total more than $3 billion during a three-year period.
